day. They open Wednesday against
Cincinnati in the Ohio city. With the
infield breaking good, as it has dur

The batting of the North Side crew
against the Louisville Colonels put
some cheer into the frame of one Joe
Tinker Tuesday afternoon. Led by
Flack and Williams with three swats
apiece, the outfit totaled fifteen good,
healthy hits for eleven runs. And
that was five more than they need
ed to win. After a substantial lead
had been piled up, a lot of the subs
were edged into the game. They kept
up the good bat work.
Special trains leave Chicago tow
night for Cincinnati to carry the
boosters who are going to the Red
kthd city to back Joe Tinker's boys
in their opening clash with Cincin
nati. Richmond, Ind., birthplace of

Our friend the weather man can
make himself solid with Chicagoans
for a long time to come if he will just
plan today to have real baseball
weather drop down on Chicago to
morrow. If all is well "along the Potomac"
our baseball blood will be called to
the first rush of the season when
Rowland's White Sox stack up
against the Detroit Tigers for the
first game of the American league
season.
All is well with the team. The
South Side boys have been working
like a lawn mower. Everything that
got in the way has been mowed
down. Fighting off cold weather in
some spots, pitchers, fielders and all
have come to time in great shape. So
now it is up to the weather man.
